Pretty Amazing!

It's a normal Sunday morning which I go to Church with my classmate, Jan. Our journey there require to walk for about 20 to 25 minutes, passing by the so called "China Town" (格拉斯哥之中国城).

Church service finishes around 12.30pm. While walking back to our halls, I heard some familiar drumming sound from far, the familiar "tung tung qiang". Then I know, it must be some Chinese New Year celebration.

When we are near the China Town, I saw the traditional "Lion Dance" (舞狮). I was amazed! Then I quickly use the lousy camera of my phone, trying to snap some picture. I told my friends that I would want to go and take pictures. All my friends were feeling strange of what they see but they do not know it's traditional. BUT, they all know now. :) Credits to me!

So here are some pictures:

This is the further one.. i am walking closer now.


Well, I am pretty amazed to see this in a foreign country. That is why the previous blog I put up pictures of lion dance from 2007 CNY celebration. Now, I feel much closer to home now.

Can't wait to go home in May! Yeah!

Chinese New Year in Glasgow!

Last Christmas, was my first Christmas celebrating without my family. The Christmas atmosphere is kinda warm here, unlike Malaysia. However, I still miss my family. Christmas is a festival I have been waiting all year.

Now, is the Chinese New Year. There is totally no holiday and NOTHING here is related to this festival. That makes me feel even more empty in me. However, I make the best out of this festival, the Chinese New Year mood in me. I went for shopping, hunting for new clothes. I manage to get some at a pretty cheap price because of the end of Winter Sales.

Well, me and my Taiwanese flatmate plan for a "reunion dinner" on 6th February. I cooked a couple of dishes, includes Hainam Chicken and Tomato Garlic Prawns. We invited our other flatmate to join the dinner. Another Malaysian and 2 other Japanese were here as well.

I am preparing to cook. Hehe. Unbelievable?

My cooking. Tomato Garlic Prawns. Yum Yum!

My well-known Hainam Chicken Rice.

These are the basic member of New Years eve.

Well, before new years eve, we have another dinner at Ariel's place on 5th February. The food are amazing. We had a great night!
